The festive season is special in many ways. As no other season, it is about reflection and taking care of yourself. In addition, it brings along a special kind of magic. The days become shorter which allow the stars to show themselves more often. The beautiful Christmas lights are lightening up the streets and homes. How to make good use of this seasonal period and ensure you get the most out of yourself, in both your professional and personal lives? Let us tap into it right away!
Measure the progress of your resolutions for this year
Stay with your head above the water, when it comes to complying to the resolutions you have set for this year. Do not panic if you are behind planning. Nobody says that you should attain them by the end of the year, there is not hard deadline. The most important thing is to not give up on them. Unlike what many of us think, the new year is not to come up with completely new resolutions. Rather, you should build further on what you have achieved so far this year. In the remaining days of 2019 try to still achieve some small steps and if the new year kicks in, you just continue with them. What you should do is to revise on them to see whether the planning or the approach need to be changed to attain them more efficiently and effectively.
It is the time of the year again. Strolling through the markets with your loved ones, tasting Glühwein and Apfelstrudel while buying Christmas decorations to bring the Christmas spirit to your home. I always have felt that Christmas markets have something magical. They bring people together. Everybody is excited for the most wonderful time of the year to come and you can really feel it.
Show the people you love your caring and love
This season is the best time to show your love and gratitude for the people you love & care about. Not only could you do this by giving material gifts, but also to spend the time together. Plan in moments to come together, have a drink or two with a tempting cheese plateau and watch a lovely Christmas movie together. Let especially those friends who live far from you know that you are thinking about them and want to meet.
Have more moments for yourself
Take more moments to get to your inner self. What I love to do, particularly when the days become shorter, is to read a good book accompanied with hot chocolate. Reading lets my mind run free and enables me to come back to my inner self. Specifically in the winter your mind and body need more attention and care.
